New Journal Class with Minnie

Good morning everyone! Yesterday Gail told me I was "slacking" on my blog...can you imagine? She's right! I need to get with it!
This past weekend Gail & I drove to our friend Minnie's house & she taught us a journal class. She had taken her class with Teesha Moore a few months ago. Anyone that knows Tracy & Teesha knows they are the king & queen of journaling. Minnie's journal was simply over the top! How stupid I didn't photograph it.
Minnie is a wonderful instructor & had all sorts of Teesha collage sheets among other great things for us to use.The class was a blast! I can hardly put my journal down. I want to work on it constantly. One of the best things about it is.............I actually WROTE in the journal! I bought gel pens & went for it. I was terrified to touch the pen to my picture..but I did it! This is my first completed page! It is 8x11 inches. There is more to come!
